Embedding a Synced Card

To embed a Guru Card that is synced from a third party, you'll copy the link of the synced Card and replace the app.getguru.com portion of the Card's URL with embed.getguru.com. In a markdown (or equivalent) block on the destination webpage, paste the following code:

<iframe src="Card URL" frameBorder="0" width="500" height="400" style="margin:10px;max-height:100%;max-width:100%" allowFullScreen></iframe>
